These are some graphics I created using photos taken on one of our trips to NZ . We were snowboarding and stayed in the Wanaka area (Andrew  proposed on this trip too! And yes, that is him in the images). New Zealand is so stunning.

More travel photos! Today I'm posting photos from one of my trips to China. I am a textile designer and the comapny I work for has a factory over there, which I have had the privilege of visiting. This factory is loacted in a "small" town (ONLY 1 million people!) called Binzhou in Shandong province. Some of the photos below were taken here, but also in Shanghai and Beijing. We will actually be spending quite a bit of time on a our trip in China, travelling along the Silk Road - cannot WAIT! China is such a massive and diverse country, so I really look forward to exploring it further!

gemma smith:

Oh how I love the work of Gemma Smith! Not only has she got a great name, but she also creates these amazing geometric artworks (2D and 3D) which I adore and want so badly. I've been admiring these for a few years now and will one day own one! It's the perfect combination - bold colour and geometry - doesn't get much better than that I'm afraid.

So this next collection of photos I'm about to share with you are very special to me. These images are of Afghanistan and were taken by my grandfather during his time there as an engineer during the 1950s. I can't tell you exactly when and where unfortunately, but they fascinate me so much and have to be one of my most treasured possessions. My grandparents were travellers and lived a very exotic life due to my grandfathers job. They were married in India, lived in Pakistan (where my two uncles were born), Malaysia (where my father was born), Borneo, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan to name a few - eventually settling back in Sydney when my father was about 10. So growing up and spending time with them, I was always inspired by their amazing stories, photos and pieces of furniture/art/textiles from these adventures.
This has been a massive influence and might shed some light on where my love of travel started and why Andrew and I are going to specific regions (I'll share more on this a bit later!) on our upcoming trip.
